I did manage to embed a movie into my website using the new player although it would sure be nice if there was an actual embed button. Also, with the new player there does not seem to be a way to make the movie full screen as the button disappears on the embedded movie. Is this no longer an option on embedded movies?

the "share" button in the new player should give you the embed code.

Yes, this is where I found it, But the movie embedded without the "full screen" button. Is this correct with the new player, or is there an issue with the embed code?

Thanks
Can you keep me posted on this. Being able to view in full screen is important to me.

I've been told by the engineer that at this time there is no fullscreen button for embedding. It will be on the list of suggested revisions.

Thanks for letting me know. May I ask why this feature isn't available with the new player?

sorry, i don't know. we're not the original developers of the player. we modify it to work with our system.

Can it be modified to add a full screen button?

it's an iframe HTML element thing.
by embedding a clean iframe offsite, you are guaranteed that we won't mess w/ your JS or CSS, and vice-versa. and over time, we'll make sure to automatically update the player to use any new formats or named files on our end -- a VERY *perma* link! 8-) those are the pluses.

negative is you can't (right now at least) off fullscreen because the iframe is inside another html dom "system". in the future, over time, things will prolly evolve and change for the better.

and for the record, it's high on my list of wishes, too! (so you know it's not going to be forgotten...)

Thanks for the replies, and the new player. I'm looking forward to the eventual update. Until then, I'll miss the "big" screen.
